27 years ago today,  ZZ Top played the second of two sold-out nights at the Civic Center in Portland. They were here on  the Recycler tour and the song My Head’s in Mississippi was rockin’ the airwaves of WBLM!  

Recycler was the last album of their “synthesizer” period that began in 1983, with Eliminator. You may also remember that the Black Crowes opened those shows and were kicked off the tour soon after.


We count 19 appearances in Maine over the years starting with a 1975 show in Lewiston and including them being the first concert ever at the Cumberland County Civic Center in 1977. ZZ has been mighty gracious to us here in Blimpville!

Now, how 'bout some voodoo healin'?
